|13 at the cafe, puncture No.1 fixed
After the puncture was found and fixed, we set off - but most unfortunately Jean now had a flat tyre. She waved us on - but in retrospect I should've told her to meet us in Waverton - just didn't think - so this is my public apology - sorry Jean, I will buy you a cup of tea next time to make up for it!

It was just getting so complicated, as now the other 7 girls had pedalled off into the distance of Tattenhall. I left the four with directions to 'stay together and follow the road!' while I bombed ahead to find them. With the tailwind I was averaging about 21-22 mph! However, I was also conscious how strong the wind was (that we would have to head into to return), and that the time was getting later, so I ditched plan a (we will try that another time) and reverted to plan b which was to head to Old Ma's.
Finally we all landed at Old Ma's, and enjoyed a variety of refreshments before some headed back.
